Hello, it seems you have injured the soft tissues in or around your knee joint which is causing trouble to you. If you experience only simple pain in the knee without any catching or giving way feeling, then the problem is in the extraarticular (outside the joint) structures propably in the muscles. If you experience any locking episodes (knee movement getting struck at one angle) along with swelling of the knee, then the problem is inside the joint. As your pain is recurring in nature, i advise you to get MRI scan for your knee joint which clinches the diagnosis. Hope you have now some clarity of thought. Good luck
